Yes, but a 2nd Gen Cummins is actually worth saving/ putting some money in. The old 12V will just run forever and the trucks aren't bad,The 12V/NV-4500 5spd trucks are really worth saving ( if you could find one ).. In my area, a 12V truck no matter the condition starts at $3k if it runs

DBM and Matt, yep that's why I'm saving it.

In my opinion the technology in this truck won't be back ever again so I'd like to keep it. You don't see this kind of power and simplicity before or after the 12V Cummins and NV4500. In my opinion this is the best powertrain ever created in the history of internal comb engines.

But at the same time yes it is frustrating trying to win against rust. At least in a truck all the pieces can be removed if the need to.
